Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: bluez

pan0 is no longer created for bluetooth adaptors. This is a regression
from lucid, where this worked with both the ubuntu kernel and the
backported maverick ( kernel.

Expected: Boot the computer with bluetooth enabled and the following in

auto pan0
iface pan0 inet static
 metric 69
 up echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward
 up iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING -s -j MASQUERADE
 down echo 0 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward
 down iptables -t nat -D POSTROUTING -s -j MASQUERADE

A device pan0 will be created.

What actually happens: The device is not created, alas. Tested on two
ia32 and one ppc machines.
